International Schools in Frankfurt

As is the case in the rest of Germany, schools in Frankfurt are of a very high standard. However, German public and private schools are often not the best option for expat students unless they are young enough to pick up the local language.

Most parents opt to send their children to an international school in Frankfurt, which allows the child to interact with other expat students and continue studying the curriculum from their home country. 

Unlike in larger German cities, there are not a huge number of international schools in Frankfurt. For this reason, international schools in the city have long waiting lists. It is advisable that expat parents start the application process as early as possible to allow their child a better chance of getting a place at the school of their choice. 

As is the case elsewhere in the world, school fees at international schools in Frankfurt are exceptionally high.On top of annual school fees, there is often a non-refundable registration fee. Parents should also expect to pay for field trips, extra-curricular pursuits, stationery and uniforms. It is therefore advisable for expats moving to Frankfurt with children to negotiate an allowance for school fees into any employment package.
